Make the sub gift badges permanent.
If you gift 100 subs and they run out, your badge disappears forever unless you gift a sub every month. But if you gift 1 bit, in 5 years you will still have that (ugly) bit badge. That sounds unfair to me. Make the sub gift badges permanent, or make it so that it will stay 1 month for every sub gifted (so for 10 gifted subs get the 10 gift subs badge and keep it for 10 months).

I'm done gifting subs to streams that aren't my favorites. This is a giant slap in the face. Twitch... grab a hold of your cheeks, use all your might, and pull your head out of your ***. Fr, this is garbage and the person who came up with the idea should be fired.
kind of pathetic not a single twitch mod has even acknowledged this post
I agree with majority of the comments here -
I gifted 100 subs to a streamer and to only find my answer here that the badge wont show anymore because I'm not constantly gifting more subs! so basically my 100 gift subs means nothing now because no one can see it in my profile or the badge! itself
Honestly, I still agree with this idea quite a lot. Your badge permanently levels up, it is a permanently tracked metric - can we please let people keep their sub gifter badges?
Hello Twitch! Anyone there?
I think it's ok that when the gifted subs run out, you can't show the gifter badge in chat anymore, just like if your sub runs out, you can't show your sub badge. But at least make it so that if someone clicks on your name, they can see that you have previously gifted subs in this channel. Like with your own sub, when it runs out it will still say 'previously subbed for X months'. But with gifted subs, it's currently not possible to tell if someone has previously gifted subs in the channel after they run out.
Why is this not a thing?
I was wondering what happened to one of my gift sub badges and google brought me here. It looks like I can gift a bunch more to get the next badge but that seems ridiculous.
I gifted over 100 subs to my favorite channel, but my gift badge is gone. Gee, isn't it great I can still use my ONE BIT badge though. *insert eyeroll here*
If I gift subs I think I deserve the badge
Hey twitch do you all need help.......hello my friends. Still nothing.
Any response from Twitch on this?
agreed this needs to happen
Goes to show how Twitch operates their business... especially hat they did to Ludwig
for real 👏👏 I gifted subs in a hype train the other day, the conductor badge is there but gift badge is not? even though i returned to the stream after few days. I read that your badge stays active as long as sub is active but it doesn't stay for even few days on many channels and streams for me!? and that little white 1 bit stands staring lol
So I gifted 50 subs during the start of Subtember but now its gone? forever? unless I sub someone again? Whys that? And Twitch has done this now for years? Yet bits stay forever and are cheaper.
Seems fishy, Come on Twitch update this.
i did not know this
no more badges
All gone to twitch =(
Seriously Twitch, reply!
Found this through Googling as well. I'm surprised it's actually set up like this. My dinky bits badge is selectable through chat user options, but my high ranking gift sub badge vanished. Pretty scummy.
